  1. It does NOT use any PPQ mags. It uses a "PPQ Style" mag made for the EDC-X9 by Mecgar who also make the PPQ mags. They are not interchangeable (unless you want to take a dremel tool to them).
  2. Except the 17L as it won't fit in the box It's 9.57 inches long and the box is 8 3/4 long.

    SIG 365

    Great gun, my everyday carry. Get one, you will not regret it.

  5. When I bought mine, there were not a lot of good premium options, GMR-15 wasn't out, CK Arms, CMMG, not out yet. And yes I like Wilson Combat stuff. My bolt-hold-open lever broke in the first 200 rounds, they replaced it and it has run like a top since, as long as I use ammo it likes. The one factory ammo I've found it DOESN'T like for sure is the Winchester 147gr T&D ammo. Can't use puny 115gr/124gr ammo, but it shoots pretty much all other factory ammo fine. Other than that, I'm still loving mine, refuse to take a bath trying to sell it, so I shoot it at any major matches I go to. My go to load now is the Gallant 125gr RN bullet under 3.8 N320, 1.155 OAL. Low recoil and runs great. I wouldn't buy it today - there ARE better options, although I'm not convinced the GMR-15 is the best.
  6. A fellow CTASA shooter has a CMC flat Trigger drop-in in his and has had no issues after replacing the firing pin retaining pin (one piece) and firing pin spring with the new parts they will send you if you have the older cotter pin and two springs on the firing pin. I simply replaced the hammer and trigger springs with JP springs and it improved mine enough to satisfy me. I replaced a fellow members springs on his with JP and he's happy too. Didn't feel like dropping in a $100-200 trigger in a $550 AR James
  7. I love the H&S 125gr RN bullets, they are the only coated ones I would buy anymore. They run great in my SP01 CZ Custom Shadow (Stock) and my Phantom. I do have to load to 1.085-1.09 OAL to pass plunk test. Interestingly enough, I loaded some in my "old" Wilson Combat 9mm CQB and I can load out to 1.14 in it, and they are superbly accurate. That OAL will not run in my other Wilson full size 9mm guns. My favorite load is 4.1 of WSF in the CQB which gives me about 129 PF. 4.2 for the CZs and my PPQ to make PF. I've switched to plated now so won't be shooting coated, unless they run another Black Friday sale in November like I bought the last batch for right around .06 each
  8. Define "Break the bank"? Basically any Commander slide on an Officer's Frame would be legal. Magwells added will have to not add too much to stay within the 5 3/8" height limit. Colt CCO Dan Wesson CCO Just search for "CCO 9mm" on GunBroker, you'll see lots of options.
  9. Really? JP tech doesn't know how to spell "hole"? Interesting as my friend who just got his GMR-15 called them about this "issue" and they told him "we've never heard of this issue from anyone". Hmm. Can you tell us exactly what sort of "magazine missfeed" you had that led to this issue you had? James
  10. Arredondo extentions (+5) do NOT work with stock Glock 33 round mag springs (not for me). Had to get Taylor Freelance extended springs for 41+ mags to run with those. Taylor Freelance 41+ with the included spring works great with Glock 33 mags.

    Shadow 2 Legal Date

    You are right I made a bad assumption. He was shooting Limited according to results. https://practiscore.com/results/new/35512

    Shadow 2 Legal Date

    He DID shoot it at Cowtown last weekend. I ran him on stage 2. Hmm, so the Shadow 2 was NOT on Production list - But our MD gave him a pass I guess
  13. 147s didn't have as much snap as the 115s and 124s. Definitely lighter.
  14. My experience with your favorite Winchester 147gr Train and Defend FMJ TC ammo in my Wilson AR9G carbine was disasterous at the USPSA Cowtown match this weekend. Worked fine on the bench, superb accuracy. Won't work reliably under rapid fire. My experience. My gun. Only ammo I've found so far that won't work reliably. FYI, YMMV. Thanks for all the Chrony info though, it's interesting. BTW, the T&D 147gr ammo only chrono'd at about 980fps in my Wilson.
  15. Well, learned a hard lesson at the USPSA Cowtown Match over this weekend about assuming too much about ammo selection and reliability. I have never had any failures of any kind with a multitude of ammo I've fired through my AR9G. With standard Glock mags or Glock 17 mags with Arredondo extensions. Once I got Taylor Freelance springs and the 41 extension, I've never had a failure with any ammo using those also. So I have typically shot 124gr FMJ ammo previously when using my AR9G at matches, but decided to try some 147gr when I zero'd my Trijicon MRO for this match. They all worked great on the bench and were very accurate. I settled on the Winchester Train and Defend 147gr TC FMJ ammo because it was superbly accurate (5 shots covered by a nickle at 22 yds). First stage at Cowtown, 41 mag loaded up with this ammo and it was disastrous. Bang Bang jam, clear, bang bang jam, clear, bang bang jam - shot the entire stage that way. Well crap, maybe that mag is bad (never failed before). Changed mags for stage 2. Same thing - bang bang jam etc. Well my match is ruined now - great. So I bummed some 115gr factory ammo off of friends (CCI Blazer Aluminum, Aguilla 115gr and Winchester 115gr White Box). Hmm, no more problems. (Another lesson learned ALWAYS HAVE FACTORY AMMO backup for full round count at matches + 50) Who would have guessed? FACTORY 147gr Winchester ammo was not satisfactory to run my AR9G. Lesson learned. Test ALL ammo to be used by doing a full mag dump as fast as you can pull the trigger or don't use it. Never assume, just because it fires fine when target shooting it will work in a match. That ammo chrono'd at the match at just under 1000 fps. Out of my 14.7" AR9G, so it is truly puny. Box advertises 950 fps at the muzzle for a pistol. Now it's relegated to my Walther PPQ The upside was getting to say Hi to Mandy, complaining she didn't bring an EDC X9 for me to try, but promising to bring one to Texas State in 3 weeks.
